It was a warning by a Trojan priest; the horse wasn’t all that it seemed. Nor is the Greek government’s latest relaxation of Covid measures all that it seems. Yes, the Covid passport won’t be needed for entering bars. Yes, the government is looking at not requiring the Covid passport for entry into the country (for European tourists). But this relaxation is only intended to be temporary - from May 1 to August 31. On the first of September, therefore, the Covid passport could well be reintroduced.

And yet it has proven to be prosperous, resilient, and now stronger than ever. Aside from a few Brits who unfortunately now need more than ever to be reassured of their exceptionalism, I'm afraid you'll need to fabricate any evidence that a majority of Europeans feel the same as you. In fact, most are openly positive about EU membership, even if they don't agree with everything.
The whole concept of European Unity in terms of the maestricht treaty was a foolish concept from the word go. As history proves every country will put their needs first. History is to engrained.
This is another good example of the cognitive dissonance exhibited by eurosceptics. On one hand, the EU has too many rules and dilutes sovereignty (some have referred to it as a "dictatorship").But in the same breath, the EU doesn't properly "harmonize" rules or enact legislation that is equally enforced across the EU. It's also convenient dissonance when criticizing the EU for failing to implement solutions to crises such as refugees or a pandemic. Yet, as dictatorial as some seem to believe, they equally criticise the EU for rather powerless to enact legislation or take action unilaterally.
